Interesting. Easy to understand. Somewhat old fashioned writing style.

Very interesting book, I learned a lot. Gordon's prose is readable. He is also opinionated and throws in just the right number of anecdotes. I read this book while also watching the "Great Courses" class, "Understanding the World's Greatest Structures," by Stephen Ressler, and think those lectures covered a lot of the same material but with more compelling examples, buildings and bridges.

Dated now. Too many idiosyncratic tidbits, but, overall useful.
